On the way home from a wonderful vacation in Nova Scotia and with a tiny bit of time before we needed to catch the ferry back to the Island so I took a quick trip into Stellarton and the Cape Breton and Central Nova Scotia Railway (CB&CNS) yard to see what was around. The yard itself was full of cars which was terrific to see. I had intended to photograph some of carbon black cars present but instead got distracted by a string of vintage flat cars at the west end of the yard. They looked like they might have been in pulpwood service but also old enough that only for captive service. They were neat to see and I thought I’d grab a few photos.
I didn’t recognise the TRAX reporting marks they were all lettered for but see that it’s one of the sets of initials OmniTRAX and it’s component railroads use.
